There is NO one Best Acne treatment. The best treatment for you depends on your Acne type and severity. When one has just blackheads and whiteheads a cream with salicylic acid or one of the retinoid creams should be enough. It will unclog the pores and reduces blackheads and whiteheads. If it’s a mild acne with a few red pimples, one would need a cream that includes benzoyl peroxide (BPO). This ingredient is the single most effective topical anti-acne ingredient. It can be found both in acne treatment solutions such as MDacne and in prescription gels such as Epiduo. Although very expensive, prescription gels such as Epiduo, are usually as effective and more irritating that high quality micronized benzoyl peroxide. People with moderate acne should also start with using the right cleansers and topical creams with benzoyl peroxide. If there is no significant improvement in 3 months they may need additional oral treatment with antibiotics or Accutane. Professional acne phototherapy (intense blue light) in the doctors’ office can be also beneficial in these cases. The most severe cases of acne (Cystic acne) will need treatment with isotretinoin (Accutane) this is the most effective anti-acne drug. An excellent way to know what is the type of Acne is the free MDacne, acne analysis and treatment App. This App uses image analysis to assess your skin and build for a daily Acne control routine with video tutorials and products suggestions.
